Industry Specific Solutions
Point-of-sale solution is scalable for hospitality businesses of all types and sizes both single and multi-location.
Our platform is, hands-down, the most user-friendly touchscreen point-of-sale solution in the hospitality industry. Training is easy, and in as little as 60 seconds, your staff will be able to take orders and close out tickets. The navigation is easy, the screen is bright and the interface is intuitive so that staff can quickly and easily take orders and track payments.
If a touchscreen point-of-sale solution isn’t fast, it won’t work in the hospitality industry. To that end, we’ve designed our system to boost the profitability of your restaurant by saving your employees precious time on every order. Shorter lines and less time entering orders means your guests will enjoy shorter wait times and a higher overall customer experience.
Food preparation is typically the key to a business in the hospitality industry, and it’s usually the busiest. Mistakes on handwritten orders cost time and money, and will negatively impact your guests. RPE will clearly communicate orders to a kitchen printer. Tickets will be detailed for every item ordered along with special requests. Orders are easily identified with optional fields on a large, easy to read ticket that includes the time of the order, the name of the server and an assigned order number. Additional features can incorporate the use of a kitchen display system to enhance productivity while removing unnecessary paper tickets cluttering your workplace.
Reporting & Administration
Restaurateurs enter the business because of their love of the hospitality industry, but often spend more time calculating income, managing food and labor costs and placing supply orders than cooking or serving guests. Save time and money through detailed reports built into RPE so that the information you need to make the correct business decisions are readily available. The best and worst selling items on your menu, shopping lists that report estimate ingredient usage based on ordered food and a labor/sales comparison report can be integrated directly into your time clock to avoid over-staffing.
